Summary

Somerset County Council’s Public Health Team has launched a community survey to seek the views of as many people across Somerset as possible.

Main News Story

As we begin the cautious journey out of national lockdown, the team is keen to hear from you about three key areas:

  • testing
  • vaccination
  • self-isolating.

Many asymptomatic testing programmes (regular testing for those without symptoms) are well underway including testing in schools, care settings and workplaces but regular asymptomatic testing has now been made available to many more groups locally, including if you are a parent, or part of a household, childcare bubble or support bubble of school staff or a pupil at nursery school or college.

People taking part in this testing on a regular basis is going to be really important as we move forward as it helps to break the chain of transmission that might otherwise have gone unidentified.

Along with maintaining ‘hands, face, space and fresh air', these are key interventions in helping us to prevent the spread of the virus.

We would like to understand any barriers that may prevent people from doing these things or having the vaccine when it is offered.

Please help us by responding to our survey to help us get a better understanding of any barriers that may prevent people from doing these tested or having the vaccine when it is offered.

Thank you in advance.
